Mulling Spices

Golden Fig founder Laurie Crowell has been crafting a line of must have ingredients for all your cooking, baking and drinking adventures since 1996. Much of her inspiration continues to come from her time spent working at The Barefoot Contessa in her early twenties and her current need to get delicious and quick food on the table for her teenage sons while keeping up with her food businesses, regular appearances on Twin Cities Live and her always packed booth at the St. Paul Farmers Market where she has sold her wares for more than twenty years. All the Golden Fig products are crafted with simplicity in mind. Good quality ingredients, easy uses and spectacular results. Products are blended to order on a weekly basis ensuring a fresh bottle every time.

Oatmeal Soap

“It’s something we do everyday…wake up and take a shower. I want to take the mundane out of your routine.  This task we do, can elevate your mood, leave you feeling silky and moisturized, energized, it gets you squeaky clean and smelling great, it can feel luxurious and can be a great moment to enjoy “me” time.There are so many choices that are made everyday in just this simple task. What soap or body wash is best for my skin? your skin absorbs it all. Should I use a sugar scrub? Shampoo bar vs. shampoo bottle, Sea sponge (YES!), Essential oil or synthetic fragrance, what’s a bath bomb? The list goes on, and it not only effects your body, but they environment as well. I want you to feel great about EVERYTHING you are using in your tub and on your body. You deserve that moment of bliss, and I would LOVE for Purple Fern to be a part of that.“  Purple Fern opened its doors in 2018 in historic downtown Brainerd.  – Brenda Billman Arndt, owner
